Michael had headed home, he was standing in the shower, the hot water poring off of him like a waterfall. He stood there, lost in thought. Meanwhile Solana, Garrus, Jack and Claire where having a few drinks and having a good time.
"Ill be right back"
Solana said walking into the kitchen. She found Michaels note.
"Guys, Mikey went home a while ago...Im gonna go check on him."
They told her not to worry and he was probably tired. She wasnt so sure.
Michael had got out of the shower, drying himself off absent-mindedly. He climbed into bed and rolled onto his right shoulder, thinking.
"Mikey! Im home!"
Solana said. Walking in the door She already had her pants off.
He said, tonelessly his hair was still a bit wet and covered his eyes. She walked in the room. Expecting to see him laying out on the bed naked. Ready for her. Big let down.
"Im tired. Sorry if you expected something else."
He saw the let down in her face. It hurt him a little seeing her let down. She climbed into the bed beside him, expecting him to turn and cuddle her at least...no such luck. Solana didnt know what was wrong. She slid closer to him, wrapping her arms around him. her hands wresting on his chest. She could feel his heart beat.
she whispered. her forehead rested against his spine.
"Talk to me. I dont know what i did...Or what happened, but i want to make it better. I hate seeing you hurt"
Michael sighed. He thought for a few minutes. Heron had left him for dead in a sense, Solana loved him for who he was.........He rolled over and pulled her close to him.
"Remember Claire mentioned my ex? Heron?"
"Well...She walked up to me outside your apartment. asking me to take her back."
She looked up at him slowly.
"Im turing her down. Shes already done it once."
She nodded. He kissed her. Happy once again.
